Watch/review: Oh Pep! – Bushwick

Words by Nick Mee. @Nickjmee

Another act from 21st-century pop’s astonishingly fertile territory of Melbourne, Australia, Oh Pep! are touring debut album ‘Stadium Cake’ in the UK next month. Their punchy single ‘Doctor Doctor’ was perhaps a little marred by a video featuring the capers of two irritating twats, but no such blemish for ‘Bushwick’, a superior song in any regard, its fulsome alt-country meets indie jangle propelled along at a fair old lick, the duo’s flawless harmonies posting a comforting melancholy to the ears. Here are lovely hooks given room to bloom by a proficient arrangement; quality songwriting, in short.
